Natural Sciences Day at Cockle Park Farm – Years 7-8

18 March @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Farm Day

Join us for a day at Cockle Park Farm near Morpeth, one of the University’s two working commercial farms, where we also carry out cutting edge research into both farm animals and food crops.

The day will feature three hands-on workshops related to some of the “Natural Sciences” – ie “traditional” science studied in schools – biology, chemistry or physics, plus a tour of the farm and its facilities.

The event will start at 1000 and finish at 1500. Each school will be limited to a maximum of 30 student places and you will need to arrange your own transport to and from the farm (there is plenty of drop-off space or parking for coaches, minibuses and cars). You will also need to bring your own packed lunches with you – a room will be provided in which to eat them.

Details of workshops to follow soon…..
